Re: Pre amp question

Is this test useful on a receiver where the AGC cannot be turned off?  My 
FT-736 has only fast/medium/slow.  No off.  I would expect a reduction in 
accuracy, but is it even worth doing?

simple test will tell you if your preamplifier connected to the actual
antenna is working or not for you:
